Rarely do I smell perfume on other people in my daily life. I don’t know if it’s because people aren’t wearing it, or because they’re wearing small amounts that stick close to the skin, or whatever they’re wearing has worn off by the time they cross my path. I love smelling perfume on people, even if it’s totally banal stuff. It just cheers me—I guess because fragrance brings me so much joy, I assume that they’re enjoying it too.
Occasionally I’ll smell a note I recognize, like the tuberose in Kim Kardashian that a young woman wore into my store a while back—but rarely do I smell and identify a whole perfume in the wild.
Yesterday, as I was leaving the bank, I smelled Angel. Angel in the wild! It was such a delight—I couldn’t pinpoint where it was coming from, the sillage filled the bank—but it was such a thrill to smell and recognize a perfume on someone else (one that I don’t hate—as I do seem to locate more than my fair share of Amarige in the wild).
Do you often find and identify perfume “in the wild”? Or is it a rare occurrence, like in my little world?
